Philippine Postal Corporation

The Philippine Postal Corporation, (Filipino: Korporasyong Koreo ng Pilipinas), abbreviated as PhlPost, is a government owned and controlled corporation responsible for providing postal services in the Philippines. The Philippine Postal Corporation has an estimated 13,800 employees and runs more than 2,000 post offices nationwide. PhlPost is based in the Philippines's primary post office, the Manila Central Post Office, which overlooks the Pasig River. Its policy-making body is the Board of Directors, composed of seven members including the Postmaster General who serves simultaneously as the Chief Executive Officer of the corporation.

Previously an attached agency of the Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) and the Commission on Information and Communication Technology (CICT), the Philippine Postal Corporation is presently under the direct jurisdiction of the Office of the President.

The Philippine Postal Savings Bank, one of three government-owned banks in the Philippines, was organized under Phlpost. However, it is a separate company today.

Famous quotes containing the words corporation and/or postal:

    What I am anxious to do is to get the best bill possible with the least amount of friction.... I wish to avoid [splitting our party]. I shall do all in my power to retain the corporation tax as it is now and also force a reduction of the [tariff] schedules. It is only when all other efforts fail that I’ll resort to headlines and force the people into this fight.
    William Howard Taft (1857–1930)

    This is the Night Mail crossing the Border,
    Bringing the cheque and the postal order,
    Letters for the rich, letters for the poor,
    The shop at the corner, the girl next door.
    —W.H. (Wystan Hugh)
